Fascinating Artist

This really belongs in a "not funny" Video thread. I looked but failed to find such a thing so if anyone knows where this post really belongs...

I stumbled across this video, I saved a couple years ago, and again was fascinated by it. (It is eight minutes long and you will not be able to stop watching once it starts so fair warning.)

http://video.google.com/googleplayer...74515665636969

And if you are interested in seeing more of his work go to:

WWW.SPREJ.COM

So how does one learn to do this type of art? Very creative and talented. The prices are surprisingly affordable.

That was amazing, thanks for sharing the link. I will never understand how people artists can "see" the final image as they paint it. I wonder what the flames at the end were for, drying? Thanks again...

Something completely different, also interesting IMO

I have always been mystified by those paintings on the reverse side of a sheet of glass (like on the doors of antique clocks) that are so realistic. How could someone create some thing like that "backwards."
